Collection Development: Geneseo Public Library District

The NNLM Consumer Health Collection Award supports the mission of the NNLM Community Engagement Network to help public libraries support the health information needs in their communities by providing National Library of Medicine and other quality health education resources to enable individuals to make informed decisions about their health. Increase public and participant awareness and understanding of the NIH Research Program using approved health literacy topics, programs, and materials in support of public libraries providing outreach to populations that meet the NIH Underrepresented in Biomedical Research UBR criteria as defined by the NIH Research Program. A print collection funded and selected by health information experts provides community access to evidence-based health information so consumers can make informed decisions about their health.
